The elegant staircase from the mezzanine to the lobby, reminds me that Tom and Daisy, characters in The Great Gatsby, were married here.
AAA Inspector Notes
This restored 1905 hotel is the epitome of ornate, historical elegance. Rooms are beautifully appointed with mahogany furniture and high-thread-count linens but some units are on the small side. Check out the Rathskeller Room in the basement. Appointed with ornate Rookwood tiles, intricately tooled leather decorations and ceramic tile images of storks, the room exudes an almost mystical, brooding Teutonic atmosphere. This hotel is an indescribably beguiling little nook nestled in downtown Louisville. This hotel has one of those old mail drop systems on each floor by the elevator. The really fascinating aspect here is that the system still works just as it did one hundred years ago.
Smoke free premises. 321 units, some two bedrooms. 11 stories, interior corridors. Accessibility (Call).
